hello and welcome to sportsday, with katherine downes and hugh woozencroft. the headlines this evening. saracens are champions of europe again. they beat clermont auvergune to win back to back champions cup titles. manchester city maintain their push for a place in the champions league with a somewhat fortunate victory over leicester city. and manchester city's women complete the treble, adding the fa cup to their league and continental cup titles. also coming up in the programme. lewis hamilton claims pole for the spanish grand prix, by the finest of margins. and age is no barrier. rugby league for the over—80s. good evening — we're starting at the scene of an historic win
7:32 pm
for saracens this evening — they've become only the fourth team ever to win back to back champions cup titles. they won a tight match 28—17 — once again, its heartbreak once again, it's heartbreak in the final for clermont auvergne. patrick gearey was watching at murrayfield. edinburgh, city of performing arts and the stage for a team that has made performing its guard. saracens, european champions last year, back to defend their title. wherever saracens go their fans expect. they are 17 games unbeaten in this competition. one match for the record, one match from greatness. that status is earned on occasions like this when the best drown out
7:33 pm
the surround sound. alex goode spotted chris ashton. down the runway, prepare for take—off. that made him the top try scorer in the european cup, this his signature in the recovered. sarries were rampant, another try,, george the recovered. sarries were rampant, another try, , george kruis the recovered. sarries were rampant, another try,, george kruis finished forcefully rather than photogenic. deja vu for those in blue, claremont have lost 13 major finals but remy lamerat gave them hope. saracens edged further ahead but club would work on to something, nick abendanon, once of england, said he was echoing to the middle france. 72 minutes, one point in it, just when saracens thrive. again alex goode saw a chance, the man who created the first try score the decisive one. owen farrell's mastery of george improved the arithmetic. job done, trophy won, saracens left to yet another level. congratulations to them, huge
7:34 pm
weekend in rugby and it has been a big one in football. particularly in the premier league. we will be speaking to ian injust a moment. but first we will talk about the top of the family. we will talk to john we will talk tojohn about a big result at the bottom of the table as well but we start at the etihad stadium where manchester city kept up stadium where manchester city kept up their challenge for a place in the top four. they are now third after a rather fortunate win over leicester city. with the premier league title decided this now a race for the also—rans. still, for manchester city there remains a champions league place to chase and victory over last season's champions, leicester, would go along long way to securing that. a goal always helps settle any nerves. it came from david silva. but was that final touch from raheem sterling, and was he offside? well, the referee thought not. little argument about their second, a reckless challenge in the box gifting gabrieljesus the chance to add another.
7:35 pm
leicester now left needing something rather special and they got it, shinji okazaki's volley before the break bringing them right back into it. a second—half push for an equaliser eventually forced an opportunity. riyad mahrez winning a penalty. he got up to take it and appeared to score but this was neither his nor leicester's day. the referee had spotted what many hadn't, mahrez had kicked it twice. a win for city and their march towards europe is almost complete. adam wild, bbc news. the letter of the law states a double touch doesn't count but having seen it and the encroachment by two city players, the referee possibly could have recalled. we see encroachments nowadays but it is such bad luck russ. but it is such bad luck by us. it is really a freak thing that you don't often see. in the second half we didn't always attack, or defend, we were
7:36 pm
playing in the middle. it was not easy to play for the biggest effort of the club to be in europe next season and that is why sometimes it is not easy to play these games. craig shakespeare ruing his luck but pep guardiola, got the rub of the green today. here's a relieved man because second—half leicester city we re because second—half leicester city were excellent, and we saw that in champions league, antoine griezmann did it in midweek and it was given but by the letter of the law it should be disallowed so the referee was right. kasper schmeichel not happy with the first goal, though. man city know that if they beat west brom on tuesday they will be in the champions league next season. what a performance from gabriel jesus, champions league next season. what a performance from gabrieljesus, he has been involved in seven goals in his last six premier league games. what a star they have found. and what of the future of sergio aguero? arsenaljust one point away from the top four in the premier league after beating stoke. we will talk
7:37 pm
about what that means in moment is the first let's go through the action. as the games begin to run out the maths class and they can become all too clear. to keep in touch with the top for his side need touch with the top for his side need to keep winning. they had been on something of a good run recent games and there was more early encouragement. nacho monreal at the end of a slick move but he wasn't able to find the target. the same route would find better success before the end of the first half. hector bellerin again providing downright, olivia giroud in the box this time to put arsenal ahead. stoke were failing to show much ambition and also giving the visitors too much space. mesut ozil able to take advantage this time and double their lead. out of ideas the home side turned to their bench to make a difference, peter crouch came on and made a controversial goal. with 20 minutes to go the put them right back in it but on closer
7:38 pm
inspection the handball meant it should not have stood. arsenal are able to respond, alexis sanchez made it three before lille put it beyond doubt. —— olivia giroud put it beyond doubt. arsenal back in the groove, six wins from their last eight premier league matches. and a look at the top of the table because the pressure is on liverpool. significantly that 3—goal win means they are level on goal difference. they haven't beaten west ham in their last five meetings. arsenal have sunderland at home and then everton on the final day. that is a very tough game. watford at home. sorry, watford. but the on full of bull. we will talk about the bottom of the table now and are crucial when for swansea away at sunderland.
7:39 pm
llore nte when for swansea away at sunderland. llorente happy with his goal. he has been instrumental this season. they were always favourites but paul cle m e nts they were always favourites but paul clements delighted andy carroll new —— and kyle naughton made it to know before half—time. sunderland were abysmal. this is a huge result. hull city now have two beat crystal palace tomorrow at selhurst park. we did a great effort in here today and we will watch the game tomorrow and see what happens. but the season is not finished, absolutely not. there could still be twists and turns. we did a good job today. we've got a good cushion going into the final week. but we have to be mindful they could get a result. we have to be ready and prepared to finish the job next week. they will look to finish the job,
7:40 pm
but look at this, bottom of the table. hull city do need to win because with the draw they would still need seven golf swing on the final day. the would be just a point behind two teams if they win tomorrow. one of the biggest games of the season at selhurst park tomorrow. hull city markers of have to win. two of the teams that i guess the bookies would have been cena favours to and at the start of the season were bournemouth and burnley. bournemouth have been in great form, they haven't beaten burnley since 1998 when eddie howe was playing. josh king scott widmer, josh king scoring 13 goals now this calendar year, only romelu lukaku has scored more. he is having a
7:41 pm
brilliant season. burnley knew they have already had their best premier league season. they know they are staying up. eddie howe. really good day today, we knew the importance of today's game. a lot has been said with us being safe and would our standards drop? thankfully today i thought the players... it was a bit scrappy first half but second half we were excellent and if we hadn't won that game it would have been a real injustice. it was a close one, they had the ball which they do, they didn't really penetrate that much, only when we gave them something, really. but they are still a decent side and they have earned the right to be in the premier league. we have done that as well. so i can't be overly disappointed with the season but was a flat second half. first off we were ok but second half it was rifat and i'm just disappointed with the goals. speaking of google ‘s, middlesbrough is and stay by southampton. much—needed win for southern. speculation claude puel could lose hisjob despite getting speculation claude puel could lose his job despite getting the league cup final. nathan redmond scored his
7:42 pm
seventh premier league goal of the season. seventh premier league goal of the season. jay rodriguez also on the scoresheet. consolation for middlesbrough, patrick bamford with his first goal in two years. sums up how difficult it has been for the asbo this season. not scoring 17 of the 36 games before this. crucial win for southampton. i hope you can enjoy this game to give our fans fantastic two last games. they deserve this. and the squad deserves also a strong final and i hope we can pleasure and the squad deserves also a strong final and i hope we can give pleasure and satisfaction for fans and for the squad. the last game at what a plane tomorrow, emotional day for the fans after 118 years. they will be still
7:43 pm
in there, managers that it could be resting players as well. really emotional occasion, lots of legends of the past will be there. and an emotional day for chelsea yesterday. the scramble for the final reckoning, tomorrow will be a big day. chelsea are, of course, premier league champions after their win over west brom last night, but that's not enough for their manager antonio conte. he says they must follow up their success with a win in the fa cup final if they're to turn a "great" season into a "fantastic" one. they face arsenal for the trophy at the end of the month: after a strong season like this, and i repeat it wasn't easy this season, i think it is right to celebrate. i think we have only started to celebrate because we have to continue. we have two games to celebrate this
7:44 pm
win. then we have to prepare for the final of the fa cup. and another great target. to try to become this season from great to a fantastic season. for sure for me it was a fantastic achievement to win with juventus in my first season but now also in england it is great for me. it is my first season to arrive and to win. this league for me it is very strong because there are a lot of fantastic players and there are a lot of great managers. to win it is a great achievement. follow man riding after a quiet first half of the first leg of the jamshed
7:45 pm
play—off came alive. fulham fought back and it finished 1—1, with reading having paul mcshane sent off towards the end. rangers have secured their place in the scottish ownership after beating hearts at ibrox. the hosts opened the scoring in sixth minute thanks tojoe garner. rangers had a man advantage as well after prince boisvert was sent off for this foul on george winn does. gonsalves squirted up but hearts were level for just winn does. gonsalves squirted up but hearts were level forjust 92 seconds before barry mckay scored what turned out to be the winner for rangers. elsewhere in this motherwell out of the relegation play—off spots after they beat
7:46 pm
hamilton academicals. dalmarnock secure their future in the top—flight. and stjohnstone confirm european football next season. huge day in women's football because manchester city have sealed a domestic treble with victory in fa cup final. they beat birmingham city 4-1 to cup final. they beat birmingham city 4—1 to round off an incredible 12 months. jessica is at wembley for us. months. jessica is at wembley for us. the stars willie delivered or four city today. yes, i think manchester city women really outclassed birmingham today. i think birmingham relatively inexperienced in comparison to the might of manchester city winning and you just wonder whether they might have been slightly overawed by the sense of occasion. a record number of fans in the stadium, over 35,000, occasion. a record number of fans in the stadium, over35,000, but occasion. a record number of fans in the stadium, over 35,000, but city just too strong and far too clinical in front of goal. this is football's showpiece season and the women's
7:47 pm
game has earned its place at the home of the sport. at wembley more people other than their way here to witness the fa cup final. almost 40,000 mark of progress. manchester city fast becoming this nation's superpower, choosing more silverware they turned to bronze. in towards lucy bronze, that is in, manchester city lead. in lucy bronze city have a full—back with seemingly every skill in her repertoire. after scoring the opening of the player this season then turned provider, her cross meeting izzy christiansen's finish. clinical. for a side who went unbeaten in the league last season supremacy are starting to come naturally. with american carli starting to come naturally. with american ca rli lloyd starting to come naturally. with american carli lloyd in the team they can call upon the super sub. olympic finals, world cup final and 110w olympic finals, world cup final and now the fa cup final, the big game scorer, the world's best player, carli scorer, the world's best player, ca rli lloyd.
7:48 pm
scorer, the world's best player, carli lloyd. three goals behind at half—time this match already looked beyond birmingham. on the biggest stage there at least got something to savour. but in this battle of the city ‘s only one dream had come true in berlin. this was all about the tea m in berlin. this was all about the team from manchester. the trophy that save had eluded them were secured in some style and an historic day for the women's game is poohs historic day for the women's game is poor‘s dominant forms did not disappoint. majesty host to a whole host of england internationals and of course asjoe reported carli lloyd, the world's best player. these are players that are big—time players. they know when to step up at the big—time occasions. record crowd here, the fans still singing asi crowd here, the fans still singing as i speak. and now they have added to their growing cabinet of trophies. they have the league and
7:49 pm
league cup title as well. they are showing they are the team to beat in english women's football. thank you very much for wembley. just 0.051 of a second — that's all that separates lewis hamilton and sebastian vettel on the grid in barcelona tomorrow. yes, hamilton claimed pole position for the spanish grand prix by less than 0.1 second, after a mistake by vettel on the final corner. tom clarkson reports: the formula 1 circus rolled into barcelona for this week spanish grand prix not knowing who would be fastest. would it be mercedes or ferrari? both teams have won two races this year and both teams have bought a host of aero upgrades to this race and after qualifying, well it is lewis hamilton with the biggest smile on his face, just, as tim hague reports. the top two in formula 1 walking onto the battlefield once again. given 13 of the last 16 spanish grands prix have been won from pole position this was not a good start for championship
7:50 pm
leader sebastian vettel. stop the car now. luckily for him he didn't stop the car and would come back a little later. in the meantime fernando alonso set about solving the puzzle that is mclaren this season. so much reliability yet in front of the home crowd he produced a stunning drive, seventh quickest in the end. but his best did not come close to mercedes's lewis hamilton, the britain back in first early into 03. his team—mate valtteri bottas getting second but could the ferraris stop them? no sparks for kimi raikkonen, fourth quickest. and it came down to vettel. the car might be back to it's best that he wasn't quite. the top two fittingly on the front row in barcelona, let battle recommence tomorrow. hamilton understandably delighted with his day's work and no doubt thrilled to be back at the front after what was a lacklustre performance in russia last summer. performance in russia last time out.
7:51 pm
all the focus now is on tomorrow's 66—lap grand prix and for hamilton, he needs perhaps reminding that it is 66 laps because it was here last year he crashed into team—mate nico rosberg on the fourth corner of the first lap. so he needs to get round the first lap to ensure that he can get back o3 lap was very good, 01 and o2 was good and the last lap was so so. i could hear the guys cheering and see the flags so god bless you. how much of a boost is that? it is always a morale boost when you come, boost when you come, it is not your home and you see the support. you guys really make the atmosphere what it is. rafa nadal is rolling back the years — back where he's happiest on clay, he's beaten novak djokovic for the first time in eight matches
7:52 pm
and he's through to the final of the madrid open. the two hadn't met in nearly a year, in which time djokovic has suffered a dramatic dip in form, and the spaniard won the first set of their semifinal 6—2. the second set was almost as straightforward as the first for nadal and he took it 6—4. he's unbeaten in all his 14 matches on clay this season, and the french open starts a week on monday. jonny brownlee made a dramatic return to the world triathlon series. in treacherous conditions in yokohama, japan, he was caught up in a crash on the last lap of the bike leg and sent flying over the railings, but he carried his damaged bike, to the transition point, to get his running shoes on, before eventually finishing down in 42nd place. you can see highlights tomorrow at 1pm on bbc two. there's been no change in the overall lead after stage eight of the giro d'italia with britain's geraint thomas and adam yates still in second and third. spain's gorka izagirre claimed his first grand tour stage victory in peschici on the adriatic
7:53 pm
coast ahead of yates in eighth and thomas in 11th. luxembourg's bobjungels retained the leader's pinkjersey. castleford have cruised into the quarter finals of rugby league's challenge cup. they thrashed st helens 53—4 at the jungle. the game was delicately poised at 10—4 mid—way through the first half but from there tigers took control — starting with jake webster's try. they went on to score ten tries in all to keep up their impressive form, they're already top of the super league. and there was a hat—trick of scores for greg eden, including this touch down early in the second half. castleford rounded off a memorable day for them with greg minikin's run and score. they're nowjust two games away from wembley and looking like the team to beat, but it's worrying times for st helens, who appointed a new head coach earlier this month. rugby league is one of the most physical sports of all,
7:54 pm
but now there's a way of playing into your 70s or even 80s.. and it's all down to your shorts, apparently. mike bushell has been to castleford to see why masters rugby league is breaking down all age barriers. playing rugby league again at the age of 82. and jimmy is taking on players nearly 50 years younger, and it's been life changing. it is rolling back the years, it is good fun. i don't get knocked about. plenty of running. and good mates again. it is played in a great spirit and it is the comradeship after the game, it is absolutely fantastic, best thing i have ever done. rugby league is one of the most brutal and physical contact sports of all. but in masters there is a way of reducing impact on ageing limbs. and it's down to the shorts. masters starts at the age of 35 when you can wear white
7:55 pm
shorts, i can only dream. it means full contact, chris. 0k... over 40 is the black shorts, i'm hoping there will be slightly less contact... no, 0k! luckily i am over 50 so i get the red shorts. what does that mean? so that is just contact there. 0k... and when you get to 60 you wear gold shorts with the tags. chris,... that is all that is to it, look at that. if you tackle a player in green shorts you know they are over 70 so treat them with even more respect and finally... jim, is it ok to borrow you? sorry. jimmy was the only player over 80. able to wear special blue shorts. admittedly even in the blue shorts there is accidental contact. butjimmy was straight back onto his feet. and the older players in masters
7:56 pm
also get an advantage when it comes to tackling as they only have to tag their opponents rather than take them down. a lot of our players have never played rugby before when they come into the masters, or have not played sport before, but it is the camaraderie. if you retire from sport at 27, 28, you can still have a 50 year career ahead of you. it has the same thrills and spills as the professional game with scrums and bursts of speed and since coming to the uk from new zealand the sport has boomed, with 50 clubs and 1000 players now wearing the multicoloured shorts. i have forgotten where the line was, i was so busy looking at the shorts. whatever the physical condition they can come and play and have fun and that really impacts on the community clubs, the amateur clubs as we used to call them, and the professional clubs as well because people are getting more involved. it has kick—started many sporting ambitions and eventually the deadlock was broken. nothing to do with me but a turn
7:57 pm
of pace from a man in his 405, hence the black shorts, but actually in masters age is no barrier. genome to have taken away from that? mike is over50. genome to have taken away from that? mike is over 50. he still looks great. until those tackles. that is all from us, more sport throughout the evening. many of our gardens could do with a good watering and there is: to be some rain around for many of us as we head through tonight and they few showers tomorrow. the satellite and radar images show we have had some rain moving in across parts of northern ireland and out towards the south—west finland, wales, showers across scotland. that is down to this weather front approaching from the west. it is moving its way eastwood overnight so a band of rain but not particularly heavy. some
7:58 pm
brisk winds and the passing of bad rain heading towards eastern part of the country during the early hours of sunday. from the west clearer skies moving in this thing so a bit fresh air. still mildly amused under the cloud and rain. that band of cloud and made his way fairly quickly in the morning. lingering towards the northern isles but elsewhere in the whole of the country it is sunshine and scattered showers. peppering showers almost everywhere but they are pretty hit and miss. ithink everywhere but they are pretty hit and miss. i think you everywhere but they are pretty hit and miss. ithink you have everywhere but they are pretty hit and miss. i think you have a fairly good chance of dodging them. mostly dry along the south coast but certainly a day for having the brolly close to hand. this is bbc news. the headlines at 7pm: nearly all the nhs trusts affected by a massive cyber attack have restored their systems, according to the home secretary. 40 trusts have been affected, and of those 43 are now currently providing services within their normal business continuity plans. jeremy corbyn denies that some senior labourfigures
7:59 pm
are already accepting defeat in the general election. the pope canonises two shepherd children who reported seeing the virgin mary 100 years ago at the fatima shrine in portugal. also in the next hour: the ukrainian capital, kiev, gears up to host the final of the eurovision song contest.
